How to Work from Home: The Ultimate Job Directory Published by Outskirts Press

Work at home veteran, Amber Scanlon eliminates most of the legwork and guesswork involved in working from home in this comprehensive listing of nearly a thousand legitimate work-from-home companies as well as the essentials needed for a home office.

Saltillo, TX, February 04, 2012 --( Amber Scanlon of SM Consulting announced today the release of The Ultimate Job Directory, Comprehensive Guide to Working at Home, published by Outskirts Press. An essential guide to those who wish to work from home or just those who wish to work in these days of high unemployment, Scanlon’s work is both an encyclopedic reference to legitimate work from home companies and a handy series of tips on how to set up an office in the home.

There are no entries in Scanlon’s directory for envelope stuffing, circular mailing or any other “get rich quick” schemes and scams for home employment. Instead, her well researched and up to date work lists only valid firms offering legitimate home employment opportunities. Scanlon gives contact information, job descriptions, pay rates and necessary background for nearly a thousand different positions.

The guide covers home employment in traditional work such as accounting, skip tracing and telemarketing, but she also describes the opportunities in niche employment markets such as medical transcription, proofreading, editing and mystery shopping -- which many job seekers may not have thought of. She even lists at home opportunities for psychic readers. There is also an informative section on successfully opening your own home based business.

Scanlon also provides a thorough checklist of those items one needs to set up an efficiently functioning, but economical office in the home. She covers the requirements of an in-house business computer, telephone (with helpful headset and speaker recommendations), fax machine and cable connections for each.

In today’s world, work-at-home careers have not only a new legitimacy, they also provide far greater flexibility for the hours one chooses to work, either full time or part time. For anyone interested in home employment Scanlon cuts through all the red tape and gives readers an experienced, carefully researched and complete resource for a new career at home.
